    It's a former 4-star hotel that you can stay at for ~£10. Best YHA I've stayed at.

    This hostel was probably the nicest one I've ever stayed in. The rooms, though they are dormitory style, are as nice as hotel rooms. Everything was very clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. The only thing I would say is that it is a bit far from the city center. On a nice day, the walk wouldn't be bad (about 20 minutes), but if you're going at a time of year when the weather isn't good, it can be a bit tough. You could always take a bus or cab if need be. Overall, very happy with it.

    We stayed there for less then 16 hours but they have a in house bar! And super clean. We did not split a room with anybody else but I imagine it would not have been so bad. Would stay here again.

    I stayed in a private room and it was amazing, just like a hotel. The staff were really nice and helpful. The only thing I didn’t like was the location, it was about a 15 minute walk out of the city in an industrial area with no shops or anything around. There was also no public transport so when I was coming back from cardiff bay my only option was to walk 30 minutes. Didn’t like the location.

    Very Good

    The hostel was easy to find and you can park nearby. The reception staff could've been more welcoming, they seemed to be a bit aloof. The room was a really good size and the bathroom was clean with a lovely big shower. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to use. Food served by the hostel was a bit pricey by hostel standards but OK. Location was handy as the city centre and quay were both walking distance. We had a room at the back which was noisy in the morning with rubbish collection.
